There’s no added sugar, and it’s so good with some fresh fruit mixed in, maybe a drizzle of agave nectar if the fruit is tart. I believe it has the same active cultures as the Stonyfield Farms, which recommended most often for use as a homemade yogurt starter because of the active cultures. It’s of course a bit more expensive per ounce than the big tub, but that’s to be expected. It’s nice to be able to grab a 4 ounce container to take with us somewhere. I just wish I could find them locally!
The YoBaby 6-packs also come in banana/vanilla, peach/pear and blueberry/apple varieties.
It does have added sugar, though there’s no HFCS or dyes. The package states that the count includes natural milk sugar, I’d just like to know how many of the 12 grams are added. Other yogurt marketed to kids has 13-18 grams of sugar in 4 ounces. YoBaby is the only one (that I know of) made with whole milk, and I don’t know enough about milk to know whether that increases the natural sugar content when compared to low fat milk.
My favorite flavor is the apple, so I had to taste one (purely in the name of research of course!) since I haven’t had one in quite some time.
Stir to mix and enjoy. Mmm…heavenly. At 110 calories in 4 ounces, it’s a bit higher in calories (and fat, but…duh) than light/low or no fat yogurt. However, I don’t really enjoy the artificially sweetened, artificially flavored, thin stuff. A 4 oz YoBaby is more filling and satisfying to me than a 6 oz. container of the “other stuff.”
Oh wait, this stuff was called YoBABY, right? Oops. It makes me want to make jokes like, “Yo’ Baby’s diaper is so fluffy…” OK never mind!
